3.5 Stars

Solving the Maze was supposed to be the end. 

Thomas was sure that escape from the Maze would mean freedom for him and the Gladers. But WICKED isn’t done yet. Phase Two has just begun. The Scorch. 

There are no rules. There is no help. You either make it or you die.

The Gladers have two weeks to cross through the Scorch—the most burned-out section of the world. And WICKED has made sure to adjust the variables and stack the odds against them.

Friendships will be tested. Loyalties will be broken. All bets are off. 

There are others now. Their survival depends on the Gladers’ destruction—and they’re determined to survive.” -via Goodreads


pooled ink Review:

So far so good (: Whilst I enjoyed this second installment of The Maze Runner trilogy I feel that the first book is better. But I really like how Dashner keeps messing with the reader’s mind (well, and the characters’ ) and this book did indeed keep my interest and I remain incredibly intrigued to finish reading the series.
